Summit Brokerage Services, the #1 Independent Broker-Dealer in the Country*, recently established a $10,000 college scholarship through the Chiera Family Foundation dedicated to the memory of Scott “Scottie” McNeil. Marshall Leeds, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Summit, stated, “Anyone who met Scottie couldn’t help but be touched by his incredible courage and optimism in battling a rare form of brain cancer. It was that very same courage and optimism that allowed Scottie to not only graduate from the University of Miami, but also author the aptly titled book, When You Think You Got it Bad. Scottie will certainly be missed by all of those people whose lives he touched.” McNeil, a past Chiera Scholar recipient, lost his battle to cancer on April 14, 2014.
The Chiera Family Foundation, whose mission is to ‘enrich the lives of children and young adults who are battling cancer,’ offers college scholarships to young adults who have beaten cancer. Each year 3-4 college scholarships are awarded to young adults in South Florida who at one time had cancer or are continuing their battle against cancer. The amount of each scholarship is $10,000 and is issued in $2,500 increments for four years. Last year, Summit established the Patrick J. Troia scholarship in memory of Summit employee, Pat Troia.
